What was your favorite vehicle?

“A ‘77 Chevy van. Her name was Jessie. She was missing second gear and reverse. There was a bed in the back and shag carpet on the walls. The speedometer didn’t work.”

Julie McQuery, Marion

“A Chevelle, 70 something, it was brown. I was about 17. My dad actually gave it to me. Me and my dad worked on it. We kept it running.”

Jeromy James, Marion

“My dad had a 1940 Jeep Willie that would go anywhere. No mud would stop us. We would all pile in and have a blast, and giggle. “

Marie Kessler, Durham

“It was a 1962 Rambler, 4-door, mint green, immaculate. I worked hard to earn money for it flipping burgers. Us girls used to pile in and have a lot of fun in it.”

Sheila Albright, Hillsboro

“1961 Pontiac Ventura. It had a four barrel carb, a standard 389 engine. It would get up and go. It was very rare. That’s what we had when we got married.”

Ronald and Ruth Herbel, Marion
